In-Courage-Is-Calling,-Ryan-Holiday-breaks-down-the-elements-of-fear,-an-expression-of-cowardice,-the-elements-of-courage,-an-expression-of-bravery,-and-lastly,-the-elements-of-heroism,-an-expression-of-valor.-Through-engaging-stories-about-historic-and-contemporary-leaders,-including-Charles-De-Gaulle,-Florence-Nightingale,-and-Dr.-Martin-Luther-King-Jr.,-Holiday-shows-you-how-to-conquer-fear-and-practice-courage-in-your-daily-life.

You’ll-also-delve-deep-into-the-moral-dilemmas-and-courageous-acts-of-lesser-known,-but-equally-as-important,-figures-from-ancient-and-modern-history,-such-as-Helvidius-Priscus,-a-Roman-Senator-who-stood-his-ground-against-emperor-Vespasian,-even-in-the-face-of-death;-Frank-Serpico,-a-former-New-York-City-Police-Department-Detective-who-exposed-police-corruption;-and-Frederick-Douglass-and-a-slave-named-Nelly,-whose-fierce-resistance-against-her-captors-inspired-his-own-crusade-to-end-slavery.

In-a-world-in-which-fear-runs-rampant—when-people-would-rather-stand-on-the-sidelines-than-speak-out-against-injustice,-go-along-with-convention-than-bet-on-themselves,-and-turn-a-blind-eye-to-the-ugly-realities-of-modern-life—we-need-courage-more-than-ever.-We-need-the-courage-of-whistleblowers-and-risk-takers.-We-need-the-courage-of-activists-and-adventurers.-We-need-the-courage-of-writers-who-speak-the-truth—and-the-courage-of-leaders-to-listen.
